During the Summer Creative Writing Workshops, WITS students visited Taping For The Blind, a nonprofit whose mission is to enrich the lives of individuals with visual, physical and learning disabilities by transforming what is seen into what is heard. Tune in this Friday, September 17, and listen as Emma, Alyssa, Jivanni, Leah, David, and Vincent read their poems on The Poet’s Corner. You can tune in at 88.7 FM KUHF, or following Friday’s broadcast, download the archived recording, “WITS Students,” by clicking this link.

HISD’s Instructional Media TV stopped by to capture the experience. View the segment.
